Ive seen similar signs and always thought they were neat. 
I had saved a rusted out bucket bottom....perfect to cut out the crow!
It was really fun designing each letter...
I just hand painted this sign
Playing around with printing on burlap..not sure where this will go.  The candy corn is actually little rocks....still need to tweek the painting, but I was anxious to try it once I got the idea!

Just trying to get in the Fall mood!  I don't really do Halloween, but I love pumpkins and crows.  So today I called on my inner 'Peter Pan' and did a little crowing.  You know, I actually do let out a loud crow every now and again.  You should try it...feels good!

You should have seen the look of horror on his face when he was very quickly walking away from me. I just can't convince my kids that life would be much more interesting if it were a musical!
